7 Monochromatic Rooms That’ll Inspire You to Double Down on Your Favorite Color

“I was initially attracted to the unique green exterior,” says Candice Molayem, clothing designer and owner of Animal Crackers. “I also saw pictures of the interior when the previous owner lived there, and I loved her 1970s style of decoration. The high, sloped ceilings upstairs and the walk-in closet were big draws, but really from the moment I walked in, I imagined myself living there.”

Although an ornate retro interior from the 1970s may not appeal to everyone, it has always been a source of inspiration for Candice. “I’ve been fascinated by this era since I was a teenager,” she says. “It evolved a bit from the ’60s to the late ’70s and early ’80s disco era. For the past 10 years or so, I’ve also been very into retrofuturism. Everything about the 1970s feels like magic – the colours, shapes and patterns all speak to me.”

Almost four years ago, Candice and her partner moved into the green dream house. For wider appeal, the interior was painted all white when it was put on the market, but when Candice moved in, she made sure to paint every wall in the place. And when she means every wall, she means every wall got color. The living room turned cobalt blue, the bedroom turned bright orange, the attic turned neon green and was filled with neon green clothes and furniture. —Zoë Sessums

The inspiration to do the painted headboard came from reading a blog post on the Jungalow. “The post talked about painting dots behind wall shelves, so we tried it and loved it so much we did it in the office too,” says Dani Nagel. “It even inspired us to start doing murals, and we’ve done bigger projects for conferences like Create & Cultivate.”

Sure, this 2,000-square-foot apartment is on the top floor of a triplex, but that doesn’t stop Dani Nagel, founder of fashion brand Dazey LA, and her boyfriend, Phillip Butler, from calling their home the “Dazeywood Penthouse” . .” Tucked away in Beachwood Canyon, a community in the Hollywood Hills, the Spanish-style apartment was a magical find for Dani and her partner. “We were looking for a place with lots of natural light and a big, open kitchen,” she says. “The guy who owns our building owns a lot of places in the area, and he showed us some things, but they weren’t quite right.” Still, they loved talking to their future landlord, and he stayed in touch. He followed up a few times and at one point convinced Dani and Phillip to see a place he hadn’t listed yet. Turns out it was this hidden gem.
